|The Fool:||Would you rather be remembered as a person, a legend, or a myth?|
|tomhoag:||I'm already a person, soon to be a legend (if only in my own mind) -- so I guess I'll have to go for myth -- or maybe the subject of a ballad -- or folklore maybe -- i dunno|

|tomhoag:||I would have contributed to an IRA (maybe not to the max amount) with some of the beer money I earned (and subsequently drank :) in college.|
|The Fool:||Share with us your best money-saving secret -- cutting coupons, sneaking candy into the movies, shopping on Wednesday and pretending you're over 65?|
|tomhoag:||I don't carry any coins in my pocket. Any coins that I accumulate during the day (e.g. change from lunch), I don't spend. At the end of the day, I put the coins in a bucket. Every 12 mos or so, I take it to my credit union (they count it for free!) and deposit the $250-300|
